Family School

A baby balanced on the table as we draw Europe. Math programs started and abandoned. Home economics in the way of learning to make our meals.

Bartered piano lessons. A Skyped in French tutor. Field trips as much as time and money allow.

Chaos sprinkled with quiet. Gus reading on the porch swing. Sena at her desk. Waves of insecurity making way for moments of elation. Desperately trying to find time for it all. Philosophy conflicting with reality. Comfort conflicting with doubt. Frustration turns to understanding.

We will find our way.
